Society of St. Vincent de Paul


Mission Statement

Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a Catholic
lay organization, leads
women and men to join together

to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to those
who are needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder,
Blessed Frédéric Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul.

As a reflection of the whole family of God, Members,
who are known as Vincentians, are drawn from every ethnic
and cultural background,
age group, and economic level. Vincentians are united in an
international society of charity by their spirit of poverty, humility and
sharing, which is nourished by prayer and reflection,
mutually supportive gatherings and adherence to a basic Rule.

Organized locally, Vincentians witness God's love by embracing all
works of charity and justice. The Society collaborates with other
people of good will in relieving need and addressing its causes,
making no distinction in those served because, in them, Vincentians
see the face of Christ.
